Absentee Voting

Voters who are unable to vote on Election Day because of physical disability, religious beliefs or absence from the town may vote by absentee ballot.


Applications for mail-in ballots may be obtained from the Town Clerk or the Office of the Secretary of State. You can also download the 2021 Vote by Mail/Absentee Application (PDF),

Applications may be submitted in person or by mail; all Ballots must be mailed out. A family member may submit an absentee application for someone. The voter or a family member must sign all applications, under the pains and penalties of perjury, before a ballot will be made available. You can also email the application back to the office by filling out the application, signing it and then scanning it in and emailing it to the Burlington Town Clerk.

If you will be absent from Burlington for an extended period of time, you may submit a single application for all elections occurring within the year the application is accepted.


In a primary election, a voter who is not registered in a political party must specify the ballot of the party of choice in the application. You will not become registered in a party because of your participation in a primary.


The deadline for requesting a Absentee Ballot is April 8th at NOON
